U.S. Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor weathered a third day of her Senate confirmation hearing Wednesday, frustrating Republican senators' attempts to probe her controversial past speeches and her views on abortion and other hot-button issues. Appearing more relaxed than on Tuesday, Sotomayor also discussed her years as a private practitioner and as a prosecutor in New York City, and spoke in greater detail than she has before about business law issues.
